I am one among many who keep a lot of windows open for reference. When my compootie shuts down inadvertantly I am avle to use "Restore Session" to get these back. But occasionally the system shuts down and I am unable to restore anything, and this can cost me tens of hours os referencing, and untold hours of productivity.

Could you save the open windows in an easily accessible file that we could use to restore previous sessions? This would save a lot of us considerable grief.

There used to be an extension called "IE Tab". It allowed you to right click on the link, and open the site in a tab, using Internet Explorer, for sites that didn't work properly in Firefox. I was wondering if anybody knows of any similar extension that would do the same for Edge? I can't open Twitter (X) using Firefox anymore, but I can open it using Edge. I don't like Edge (obviously), but I have no choice. Thanks in advance!!!

firefox is using so much memory that it is causing lag and loading problems.

i know that the root of my problem is that i have an unholy amount of tabs open all the times but if i go into the process manager for firefox i can see that the memory problem is actually usually only 1 or 2 tabs that are using over 1GB of memory. this has only been a problem in the last few weeks so i am not sure if something has changed on the firefox side of things.

I looked into tab unloading and this seems like it would solve my problems. however the unloading process only happens automatically when the total amount of memory that firefox is using approaches the maximum amount of memory you system has available. with 32GB of ram and firefox reaching not even 16GB when completely stretched the automatic process will likely never hapen. yet firefox is still using enough memory that it is causing itself problems.

i dont really want to have to unload my tabs all the time to keep firefox's memory in check. is there anyway to lower the amount of memory that causes firefox to automatically unload tabs? i have seen extensions that say they will sleep tabs that are not being used. however they all seem to just sleep tabs that are not currently in use rather than sleeping tabs that have not been used that day.

i feel like the tab uploader is such a good feature in firefox that i would love to be able to use it to solve my problems. however i am not sure how to make this happen in the laziest way possible.

Firefox is my default browser. Up until a few months ago, if I clicked a link in an Outlook email, it took me to Firefox and opened the site. Now it takes me to Microsoft Edge.

At the same time, another problem arose, albeit minor. When I am using Firefox and attempt to email a link, there is a message, "Navigation failed" and a blank screen appears. This is not a big problem, since when I open Outlook the email is waiting to be sent. But this too smacks of something Microsoft is doing to sabotage the competition.

Firefox Browser 123.0 (64bit) Windows 11 Pro

Lately I have been experiencing issues/difficulties to access certain websites either an security issue (eg Site needs to verify the security of my internet connection. This verification process times out and of course results in not getting access. Or the following message gets displayed when accessing this site:

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to mynikonlife.com.au.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies"

In both the above cases I experience no difficulties, using Microsoft Edge. Is there an solution to this or do I start using MS Edge (which I do not want to)?

I don't know if it is a setting because I have looked everywhere to find one that could be causing this. When I visit some websites, SOME of the numbers are removed from the text (see picture). This happens on secure sites I sign into, like bank and credit card accounts, but it also happens on websites where I am not signed into anything, just looking at information. I was reading a research article and all the numbers from the body of the text and the citations were gone - I had no idea what the results were because there were no numbers before the % signs. When I use Chrome, this problem does not exist. I just started using Firefox trying to get away from Chrome and this issue has been present since the first moment. The only extensions I have are Grammarly, CapitalOne Shopping, and RetailMeNot deal finder. I have used these for years with Chrome and no problems. I have cleared cache and cookies. I have logged out and logged back in. Any idea what's causing this and/or how I can stop it? Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, I would like to export all my bookmarks once a day. This needs to happen automatically because it will be part of a bigger idea where I will be working with this file etc.

Is there any way to do this? For example: - do it using API directly in the Firefox Sync service? - do it via command line in Windows?

Any other idea?

How to disable language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text for certain language?

I want to disable the "language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text" feature that shipped in 122.0 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/122.0/releasenotes/)

This new feature is cool, but it has actually slowed down the speed at which I select text. Originally, I could double-click to select an entire sentence, but now a double-click only selects a single word.

It would be great if there was a way to disable this feature for a specific language.

Thank you.

I wish to install and use the Firefox browser on my old 64bit Windows 7 laptop.

I believe the last v115 will be the last Windows 7 compatible version of Firefox, if this is correct where can I find this or the correct version of Firefox to download and install on my Windows 7 laptop?

The Firefox website only seems to provide v119 now.

How can I recover the history that has been deleted from firefox? Already there is an article from 2020 which says to find index.dat file but there is no .dat file that i can find. I am looking for the file in the following location: AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\83ctti6r.default-release\cache2 and that location is the only one with a file named index but it is without .dat extension. If that is supposed to be the file that I am to use then which .dat file reader do I use to open it and recover the history.
